Great job! For me there's a little too much unison and homophony, with the lines in much the same rhythm throughout - perhaps more of an imitative texture near the end, with overlapping groups of three quavers? Or a canonic texture with one trumpet starting its line and the other picking up at the octave or a different starting pitch altogether. I love the stuff from b.25 onwards, reminds me of Copland (whose music is bae). I play trumpet myself and would enjoy recording the 2nd part (the 1st part is too damn high for me, but a professional would have little trouble, unless the score is at concert pitch, in which case the top B becomes a more troublesome top C# 😉 Thanks for posting

Totally agreed.  Needs way more counter point!!

I may drop this down a tone to the key of C and also rewrite the into into 4/4 time. As you say, I must stop relying on unisons, octaves and homophony so much. Thanks for the review!

 

This is already in C.  Or do you mean Bb concert?
